Want to buy a rice cooker. Do you have any suggestions?

So tired of overcooking and burning rice every time I try to cook it that's why decided to buy an automatic cooker. Please, let me know about your experience of using them.

    Married to a Asian and we cook rice in a cooker almost everyday. They all work fine even the cheap ones. Secret is to wash the rice thoroughly a few times before cooking. Until you get the hang of adding the proper amount of water, follow the directions and use the measuring cups provided.

    i tried one years ago. it was more of a hassle than just cooking the rice in a pot. i have a little wind up timer that i use. 1 rice, 2 water. tbs butter, tsp salt, bring to boil, turn down to simmer,  cover for 20 min.

    I cook rice in a pot, a cheap rice cooker and have a zojirushi (or whatever the name is.) Bought an 8qt instant pot from best buy ($40 deal of the day) a couple weeks ago and I've discovered, among all the things it does, it's a great rice cooker. Will probably throw out the old style specialty cookers.
